  • Our research - Canadian Cancer Society
    how we can improve the quality of life of people living with cancer Today over 60 of Canadians diagnosed with cancer will survive at least 5 years after their diagnosis In the 1940s survival was about 25 In 2011 2012 the Canadian Cancer Society funded more than 46 million in leading edge research supporting close to 300 projects across the country As the largest national charitable funder of cancer research in Canada we are leading the fight against cancer Search our database of research projects currently funded by the Canadian Cancer Society Basic cancer research Basic research is the cornerstone of cancer research and usually takes place in a laboratory where scientists seek to understand the disease at its deepest levels Using sophisticated tools and technologies scientists peer inside single cells observing and describing complicated biochemical and genetic processes to answer our most fundamental questions about cancer How does the disease start How do tumours grow and spread to other parts of the body Can this growth be stopped Research has already yielded many answers to such questions and our understanding of cancer has never been greater than it is today In fact many of the milestones achieved in cancer research over the last 50 years have been thanks to basic research The range of basic cancer research funded by the Canadian Cancer Society is vast and sets the stage for a new era of advances in our fight against the disease Today basic researchers are hunting for substances or markers that can be detected in the bodies of people with different kinds of cancer trying to find out why certain cancer cells and tumours become resistant to chemotherapy or other treatments looking at the genetic basis of different cancers for example how certain genes make us more vulnerable to cancer or make us more resistant to anti cancer drugs testing and analyzing various substances either for their ability to fight cancer or for their potential to cause it developing specialized animal models and cell lines to help scientists carry out their cancer research studies The goal of basic cancer research is twofold find a breakthrough discovery that will help prevent control or even cure cancer and contribute a small but significant bit of knowledge that will help other scientists as they work on their own piece of the cancer puzzle Behavioural and population based cancer research Every year the Canadian Cancer Society supports a wide range of studies aimed at helping people lead healthier lives and reduce their risk of cancer identifying what can improve the quality of life of people with cancer and their caregivers examining the causes and control of cancer Researchers examine the cancer risk factors affecting groups of people such as genetic or inherited factors and environmental or workplace carcinogens and they evaluate the quality and accessibility of cancer care in communities across the country The Canadian Cancer Society also funds the Propel Centre for Population Health Impact at the University of Waterloo Propel conducts
